When The Rains Come…..


 First, Happy St. Patrick’s Day!!

It’s a gloomy, rainy day here in Houston, completely unbefitting the holiday. But I digress….

But as I was sitting on my patio early this morning surrounded by the gloominess, I was also able to reflect on the so-called “bright side” of things – hence, this post was born in my mind.

In our personal and professional lives, it is inevitable that the rains will come. Meaning, there will be times when we feel like giving up, the pressures get to be too much, or there is so much happening that we find it difficult to keep everything straight.

So when the rains do come (and they surely will) try these tactics to remind yourself of how very fortunate you really are….

When there is so much happening that you can’t keep things straight, remember that you are fortunate to have work to do. Too many people still don’t. Take inventory of everything that is fabulous in your life or work. You’ll most likely realize that things aren’t that bad.

When the pressure gets to be too much, do something that frees your mind. Take a walk, pick up a good book, or listen to some of your favorite music for a few minutes. In other words, allow yourself to take a break. It’s OK. It’s healthy. It will make you more productive and will at least give you a small respite from the pressure you’re feeling.

When you feel like giving up, remember that the next step is always more fruitful than the last.

Once again, Happy St. Patrick’s Day!
